Blame some big faceless corporation for one's own lack of ability to raise children. OMG, some big evil corp is making my children fat! Sue them, it can't be my fault, I only paid for it and gave it to my children to eat!

Hmm, the Quebec guys who had their chimney knocked down by the earthquake this week should sue some scientists too! No one was hurt but they will have to rebuild that chimney and that ain't free!

Default Google is evil, plays their "big Brother" card.

You are not in charge of your own smart devices. Some big evil corp will always have the final say about what you can, or can't, do with them.
